The Escape is a great new ship getting excellent reviews and I agree. There are many pluses and only a very few minuses. We have cruised with NCL a number of times so we know most of the drill. The first and last plus was the timed on ... Read more

The restaurant package was difficult to maneuver. I kept forgetting which days I was going to which restaurant and what time. I really feel that there should be a way to monitor it perhaps on the TV in your cabin. I even made a mistake ... Read more

The good Room - We stayed in the Haven Suite and it was fantastic. The bathroom and shower were as good as it gets. Plenty of room and storage. The only downer was the tv channels. No regular stations like NBC, ABC or CBS. They had ... Read more

Let me start by saying that a more appropriate name for this ship should be NCL - No Customer Loyalty, or Service for that matter. I hate to be a negative nelly, and you may look at my review and think "wow, she's really upset" ... Read more

I sailed the Norwegian Getaway from March 29 - April 3rd. It was my first cruise and I went on my own. I chose the Getaway because they had Studio cabins for solo travelers, which is why I flew to Miami for this trip. Overall, I ... Read more

Loved it, loved it, loved it. Wish I was there right now. Since there are so few reviews that address accessibility information for disabled people in wheelchairs and scooters, I think I will focus on that. As a person who uses ... Read more
